On Saturday evening, December 3rd, Gitano Miami hosted an intimate evening of live painting with Brazilian-based artist and muralist Joao Incerti. Inspired by emotions and experiences, Incerti’s work features bold and intense shapes. Born in Rio de Janeiro, raised on a farm in Teresópolis, and then returning to Rio to study fashion design at Senai Cetiqt, Incerti spent five years at Farm Rio, creating more than 300 prints, before becoming a full-time artist.

Throughout the evening, guests experienced in real-time Incerti creating a beautiful painting from a blank canvas to a finished piece, that represented his interpretation of GITANO Miami, highlighting the beloved jungle disco glam theme.

On Tuesday, November 29th, The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach hosted ‘A Concert of the Seven Decades & Beyond’ to celebrate Miami Art Week. As a continuation of the hotel’s Art For Good program, the iconic resort partnered with Miami Symphony Orchestra, Miami City Ballet, MONAD Studio, and FL Fuoriserie to celebrate the 70 years since the Morris Lapidus landmark was erected on South Beach and all the history, art, and culture that flourished in those seven decades.

The world-renowned Miami Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Eduardo Marturet, performed a specially curated collection of locally significant music as a moving musical tribute to the last seven decades of Miami’s one-of-a-kind history, art, and culture using MONAD Studio 3-D printed sonic sculptures. 

With the help of the knowledgeable South Florida-based luthier Scott F. Hall, the sonic sculptures were usable instruments played by the Miami Symphony Orchestra.
